Daniel was seen by a community paediatrician regarding his behaviour towards food and his rapid weight loss and they were linked to a likely medical condition. The potential for abuse or neglect were not considered. The paediatrician was unaware of the physical injuries witnessed by the school. Three weeks later Daniel was killed.
“Once I got teased, I could see where the anger came from and what can make someone want to kill,” said Stefan Barone, a fourteen year old. (ABC News) The anger and depression is overwhelming and hard to control. There is no doubt that bullying cause’s suicide, and those bullied often commit acts of violence against others.
The parents have played a very important role in Daniels life. They brought him up always showing him what's wrong and what's right, what choices to make, and who to trust. Being a parent means that you should always be in control of your children for as long as possible. Daniel was said to be the type that needed guidance even though he came across as a strong and independent. His mother knew this, but even she was scared of what he was capable of. When times got rough the parents backed off and let him make his own choices. That wasn’t the best move to make. The parents might have shown love and affection to Daniel but they truly couldn’t see what was going on. If only they had paid enough attention to Daniel maybe they could witness how badly he was coming off the rails. They could of helped him. Helped him to make the right choices.
Kaysen illustrates the suicidal thoughts that she had, and the state of mind a person must be in in order to attempt suicide. She mentions that you must mentally and emotionally detach yourself from life so that one may feel that life is not worth living anymore. Dissociative symptoms are also a part of borderline personality disorder. This is evident in an episode of depersonalization that Kaysen experienced. Kaysen becomes worried that she does not have bones in her hand. She recalls the incident by saying:

Jeremiah had been working at Rueben and Swedes school as a janitor. After the two murders Superintendent Holgren began to treat Jeremiah differently, as he allowed his opinion to determine whether or not Jeremiah deserved the job. Holgren made work even more difficult and disagreed with everything that Jeremiah did. Jeremiah, being the calm person that he was, never retaliated with negative words. He allowed Holgren to mistreat him, even in front of the staff and students in the school. Holgren finally resorted to firing Jeremiah in front of everyone, but Jeremiah simply touched his face and walked away.
Suicide is a horrible tragedy and should never have to happen, but unfortunately, some people think there are no other options. In “Romeo and Juliet” by Shakespeare, the main characters, Romeo and Juliet, take their own lives. They decide to do this because they feel the only way out of their current situation is to kill themselves. They were so desperate that it got to the point where they couldn’t handle the pressure. Although readers agree on how they died, an argument occurs when this question is brought up. What pushed Romeo and Juliet past the breaking point that eventually led to their desperate actions? Some readers blame internal forces such and immaturity and impulsive behavior, while others
She states that "He takes serious meds, but that's not his fault." She doesn't state that it's for a mental illness or if it's recreational use so I didn't want to assume she just knew. She might think he's taking pills recreational because of stress or anxiety about his father which isn't his fault or she might know he was given to them by a doctor but never elaborated that he had a mental illness and she guessed. He could've also told her he has a mental illness how you're saying though. There's a ton of ways what she said could be interpreted so I don't want to assume but I agree that it's possible she knows.
In two of his soliloquies, Hamlet questions whether life is worth living. With characteristic ambiguity and indecision, he wavers as he considers both the Christian and the classical perspectives on suicide. Much of the debate surrounding Shakespeare’s treatment of suicide in Hamlet develops from interpretations of those soliloquies. Focusing primarily on his most famous soliloquy at the start of act three, much critical debate has arisen over the subject of his ruminations, whether on suicide or revenge, as critics draw parallels of development in what is seen as the oppositional thematic relationship between self-murder and murder of the king. Although Hamlet’s spiritual conscience and his
It is sad that someone so young took his life, because of being bullied and being depressed. He just wanted to be loved and accepted. As a counselor, we can help by finding support groups to discuss their issues in a safe and confidential environment (Sue & Sue, 2016). The counselor can also help the individual realize that bullying is not here fault and find more positive coping strategies. As counselor should not judged and assess what is comfortable for the client and do not assume. Great

In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, suicide is treated differently on the aspects of religion, morals, and philosophical views. Suicide is the act of deliberately killing yourself in contrary to your own best interests. In today’s society suicide is highly looked down upon. But Shakespeare used suicide and violence in almost all of his most popular plays. Many of his tragedies used the element of suicide, some accomplished, others merely contemplated. Shakespeare used suicide as a dramatic device. A character’s suicide could promote a wide range of emotions: horror, condemnation to pity, and even respect. Some of his suicides could even take titles like the noble soldier, the violated woman, and star-crossed lovers. In Othello, Othello see suicide as
Jeremiah deals with the reality that he was groomed and chosen for his position before the Lord. He grew up in Anathoth(Jer. 1:1), which if you look at the history of Israel was where the Solomon banished the old Priest Abiathar (1 Kings 2:26-27) to, so you can guarantee that there was education based on the old ousted priesthood in Jeremiah’s teaching in Anathoth. Which would have contributed to his theology of state. However, being that he was groomed for this position, identified throughout his call narrative in Jeremiah 1:4-10, he was setup to be this voice of the Lord to the people. Now, while you may say that Jeremiah was different because of his special role as a prophet, and while I would agree that does play into an extent, the role that we as God’s people are to be in the world is that of a prophetic voice for those who need to hear the Lord. Accompanying people who are going to live out the values of God and speak with the insight and revelation of the Lord will be surely met with hostility and rejection. While this idea might be surprising to some it also reveals the lack of biblical literacy because this was that case with all the prophets (those who spoke on behalf of the Lord) and to the most important representative Jesus himself. Now, I will also say that not every situation gives rise to this hostility, but it is going to definitely something that Jeremiah has to be warned about and even built up by the Lord to defend against it, however only in the
